And, in fpc, String right now (by default) is a sequence of 8 bit units
(e.g. UTF-8 coded, but they are often called "ANSIString", and thus
locale based ANSI coding is used as well). This (with locale based ANSI
is inherited from and compatible with pre-2005 Delphi.
I read discussions in the fpc devel mailing list that this might change
to define String (by default) as a sequence of 16 bit units (e.g. UCS-2
/ UFT-16 coded by default) and this upgrade to Delphi post 2005
